Seductive Identifications - LIR 619

Multicultural or ethnic minority literature has come to be recognized as an important aspect of the cultural landscapes of Australia, Canada, and the United States. In this course we will read both creative and critical literatures in English that define specific sites of multicultural engagement. Readings include Castro’s Birds of Passage, Haikal’s Seducing Mr Maclean, Kureishi’s The Buddha of Suburbia, and the poetry of Antigone Kefala.
